There has been a lively debate this week on the neighborhood listservs talking about whether or not a Medical MariJuana Dispensary should open up in their neighborhoods. I’ll be honest – while I wouldn’t be thrilled if a methodone clinic opened up in my neighborhood, and perhaps it’s a bit hypocritical, I really have no problem with a medical marijuana dispensary. I don’t smoke marijuana (though of course I tried it in college) but I just don’t think it will attract a negative element. In fact my suspicion is that we won’t even realize it is there. Now, I’m gonna be honest again – I’m really just guessing and have no idea what impact (if any) it would have on my community. Thus this week’s FQotD.

So the Friday question of the day is not whether you support medical marijuana in general, rather, would you object to or support a dispensary in your neighborhood? Why?
